It’s official: Full House reboot headed to Netflix
Netflix’s “Full House” revival “Fuller House” is officially a go . . . and as we’d heard, it’ll star Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber, who are back as D.J. Tanner and her friend Kimmy Gibbler.
Jodie Sweetin, who played D.J.’s sister Stephanie, is also in the fold . . . but the word is still out on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who teamed up to play Michelle.
Here’s the premise: D.J. Tanner is still living in San Francisco, but now she’s a pregnant veterinarian who was recently widowed. She also has two preteen boys, so Stephanie and Kimmy move in with her . . . like how Joey and Jesse moved in with Danny on the original show.
Kimmy is also a single mother. Her teenage daughter will be moving in too. Interestingly enough, Stephanie is an aspiring musician like Jesse. It’s unclear if she’ll also be a recovering drug addict like she is in real life.
John Stamos is producing the show, and he’ll also make guest appearances. Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, AND the Olsen twins are all reportedly in talks to return, but it’s unclear how far along they are.
One final note: It’s going to start off as a one-hour reunion special . . . and then spin off into the show. So, there’s a chance they’re only able to land some cast members for the reunion, and not for the actual show.
We’re assuming the special would also be a Netflix thing. For now, the show will have 13 episodes, and is scheduled to hit Netflix sometime next year.
